My Postcards: Memory of Paris van Java

Dear friends,

Hereby I share you my Old Bandung City Landscapes on Postcards. My beloved home town. I live and grow here.

Bandung is a flower city in West Java, Indonesia. In the old times, when the Dutch colonialism era back then, Bandung is well known as Paris van Java. Dutch colonials describe Bandung as a cool place and neat architecture like Paris. So, they called Bandung Paris in Java island. Paris van Java.

The weather is warm in sunny day (sun shines almost of the year) and sometimes cool and humid when the rainy season comes.

Here what I get in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandung … check this brief out!

Bandung (/ˈbændʊŋ/ or /ˈbɑːndʊŋ/) (Indonesian: Kota Bandung) is the capital of West Java province in Indonesia, the country’s third largest city by population, and second largest metropolitan area in Indonesia[citation needed] with a sprawling urban population of 8.6 million in 2011. Located 768 metres (2,520 ft) above sea level, approximately 140 kilometres (87 miles) south east of Jakarta, Bandung has cooler temperatures year-round than most other Indonesian cities. The city lies on a river basin surrounded by volcanic mountains. This topography provides a good natural defense system, which was the primary reason for the Dutch East Indies government’s plan to move the colony capital from Batavia to Bandung.

Bandung nowadays have lots of interesting attractions to EXPLORE. The culinary, fashion, culture, nature, history, BUNCH of them!!! be sure to visit!
